Carotid Doppler Ultrasound
A carotid Doppler ultrasound is a diagnostic procedure that uses high frequency sound waves to generate images of the blood flow within the carotid arteries in the neck. The carotid arteries supply oxygen-rich blood to the brain. This test allows the doctor to detect any narrowing of the arteries and also determine how quickly blood flows through them to determine a patient’s risk of stroke or other heart conditions.

Dr. Nelson and his staff are a caring and professional medical team. Very impressed that their scheduling is within acceptable time frames and you are not left sitting for hours. Procedures are explained as well as pre and post instructions. I could not be happier to have Dr. Nelson as my experienced and caring cardiologist and vascular professional. From the front desk to the insurance to the members of his staff, Dr. Nelson is an excellent experience.
